rapist anywhere near her child. let's bring in our legal guys avery friedman and richard herman. gentlemen, two things really standing out in this case. richard, you know, you first. how unusual is it for a convicted rapist to be held to visitation as well as to payment, child support? >> well, fred, in 34 states this happens. 34 states allow this. 16 states say no. the criminal sentencing judge in this particular case directed the case to go to family court and directed him instead topography make restitution, to make child support payments. so he says listen if i'm making child support payments, i want to be a father to my child, i want to have a say in education, in upbringing, and as long as i'm paying child support i'm going to do this. now one issue is can a criminal court judge direct a case to family court? that's a big issue here. but having said that it's in family court right now and he's going to get his visitation. absolutely. >> well, avery this kind of an arrangement seems to undermine a whole rape conviction. now we're saying or the court is saying that there's a

, avery freeman who joins us from washington and then richard herman, a new york criminal defense attorney and law expert who joins us from las vegas. hello, gentlemen. >> hi, marty. how are you? >> very good, thanks. all right. let's talk about this. interesting stuff coming out of the zimmerman case. first and foremost, let me ask you this, richard. the attorneys that were representing george zimmerman want these records, social media and school records. why do they want it? sounds like a fishing expedition. >> oh, marty, it's not a fishing expediti expedition. they want to show that trayvon mart heroin a propensity for violence. they want to show that and then try to argue to a jury that obviously martin with his propensity for violence was the aggressor. however, just -- before everybody goes crazy here, it's just for discovery purposes at this time. it does not mean this material will be admissible at the time of the trial. so that's for starters. and the judge will have to make that decision during the trial. or just before it. but in any event, it may not come in at all or

to see you as well. >> hi, fred. >> avery, you first. the parents say this is unconstitutional and its attorney sent a letter to the superintendent saying stop the yoga or we're suing. do they have grounds for this? >> well, they're saying essentially that yoga is a form of, as they're saying it, hindu prose la tizing. these are evangelical hindus. no science about the workout, no science about breathing. they're just saying it's anti-christian. let me tell you something in my opinion it is a constitutionally unhinged argument. there is no basis. you know what, i spent time in federal court getting restraining orders under the first amendment. let them take it into federal court. the federal judge is not going to grant a restraining order. it is not anti-christian, it is not prose la tizing. it is absolutely proper for these 5500 kids to be exposed to this physical workout. >> richard, why now after three years and like a half million dollar grant to keep this program going? >> yeah. i respectfully disagree with my dear friend, avery, on this one. whenever you're using public funds

secretary avery does and the job is getting iggerll the time. this is kind f wht think has to e the uniqueness of it is something that we're striving t in dealing with dhr, to emphasize hat it's not like any other position that's analogous to it that exists in the city because it is so unique. we certainly would welcome comments and questions from the public to both the subcommittee, to the commission as a whole, to dhr, whoever you feel it's appropriate to comment on what you've seen because many of you are here week in and week out and you see what the secretary does and how difficult it is. appreciate that. >> commissioner moore. >> this subcommittee was put together in june and we have met every two weeks since to indeed do the due diligence and create a process which is indeed commensurate with the importance of what we are to do, which is basically in the public's interest, find a replacement for an extraordinary commission secretary, ms. linda avery. the letter which came in this morning at 10:52 a.m. raises a number of very important questions, which i have to admit are unex

]. [laughter] (applause) (applause) >> and my next honor is for linda avery herbert who i worked with for 7-1/2 years at the planning commission. she mentored me and she mentored so many other people in this city. serving on the planning commission is not a very easy task. it's like hours and hours of work. we sit in meetings for 10 hours or more. and linda was my mentor for a long time. she was my guide. and without her, i don't think i could have gotten through those meetings or served the city in the manner that i was able to. with your example, you always have such an incredible amount of grace and [speaker not understood]. i don't know what else to say other than i'm really grateful to be here today, to be able to honor you. i know you're retiring i think at the end of this week is it? >> tomorrow. >> tomorrow, wow.

meet literacy standards. so i wonder, avery, how will the aclu try to establish if there is intent or willful negligence as it per tens to these kids not being able to read more proficiently? >> well, i love this case, fredericka. this is such a creative piece of litigation. and they're basically saying there's a constitutional right to literacy. and they derive that by saying if the public provides for public education, that assumes when you send children to school that there will be research-based teaching. there will be objective standards and measuring for literacy. the brilliance of this lawsuit is recognizing that the state hasn't done it. what they'll have to do. it's not a matter of money. in highland park, fredericka, they play 14 to $16,000 a student, a pupil, among the highest expenditures in the state. so what the aclu wants is for the court to say, yes, there's a constitutional right to literacy, let's use science, let's use objective standards. that should make a difference. that's the assumption that the case makes. >> and so richard, it's not an issue of money. it's no

i would second linda avery for her fine work and keeping order. i'm here today primarily because the transportation sustainability program [speaker not understood] was held, i think its was september 25th. so, and it ended october 5th. the problem was that planning department did you good outreach, but in this case the outreach was not very good. and at the scoping meeting when i attended, for q and a, i asked some questions, got some answers and that was not allowed. the only thing allowed was for people to make comments. the meeting was very poorly attended. there were only three public speakers, three members of the public who spoke and made comments. all the other people in the room i think were probably from departments or public transportation agencies. and i asked for a copy of the comments from the scoping and planning was very good and they gave me a copy and i went through it. [speaker not understood] bart, caltrans, golden gate bridge, et cetera. and very few comments from the public were there because not many people knew about this. and i think it's a very important

interesting thing i want to mention today was myron avery. myron avery, the history of the operation trail and myron avery are completely intertwined. you wouldn't have per trail without avery. benton mackay was the person who wrote an article in the 1920s saying, there should be a trail that you could walk from georgia to maine to see the whole country. myron avery is the person who went out then and built the trail, who walked it. he was the first person to walk the length of the trail. he was in maine native. his family background was in sardine canning which of course was a huge industry in maine in the early 20th century. but he loved the woods. he became an attorney and a captain in the navy and did admiralty law for a living, but according to one source spends 15 weekends a year working on the trail. he was headquartered in maryland and so he founded the potomac appalacian club and was the president of that. the trail would not have existed without him. he died unexpectedly at the age of 62, and had arranged to leave his papers to the maine state library and fortunately becaus

, commission secretary avery. my name is larry badiner of badiner urban planning and i am here representing fresh and easy. i do is a representative of fresh and ease knit audience if you have any questions. not much i have to add to rick's excellent presentation. i think he covered it pretty well. this is a simple project. tenant improvement actually essentially occupying a vacant store with fresh and easy grocery. it requires a conditional use for formula retail and occupies a former rite aid site. so, we are a formula retail replacing a formula retail and it will not increase the overall number of formula retail uses in the area. grocery stores are recognized by the city as highly desirable uses. they are declared priority projects by the director of planning, the city actually requires a conditional use to eliminate a grocery store. so, you need a conditional use to do a new grocery store and you need a conditional use to eliminate one. kind of a planning conundrum, damned if you do, damned if you don't in planning terms. the grocery store's anchor neighborhood districts. they promote o

further, it would seem -- i think we discussed before ms. avery's willingness to perhaps -- i'm sure nobody's gotten this far yet -- perhaps come back at some point after, you know, she takes care of her family business, and we should keep that in mind i think if that possibility exists. >> let me interject some thoughts. first of all, thank you to the committee members, commoditier, moore, and antonini for serving on this. it's difficult and we started the discussion about a year ago knowing that it was going to be a tight time frame if we didn't hit any glitches and here we are with a little bit of a hurdle. i want to stress, and again, i wrote that in my letter to the subcommittee to try to expedite this process as best as possible so it doesn'tant become a detriment to the staff who are filling in for linda. i appreciate linda's -- all her years, and also appreciate and respect her desire to retire. so, i think it would be great if we needed her and she was available, but i don't think we should as a commission depend on that and we should try to expedite this process as soon as
